The University Of Lincoln’s School of Media has a new head.

Dr Sarah Barrow has taken over from Professor David Sleight, who is now the University’s dean of Media, Humanities and Technology.

Barrow was previously a lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. She was also one of the founding members of the internationally-recognised Cambridgeshire Film Consortium.

“I’m delighted to have joined the School of Media at such an exciting time. Our academic programmes are going from strength to strength and our growing reputation and the quality of our students is evident in their recent success at the Royal Television Society National Student Awards,” Barrow said.

Before turning to teaching, Barrow managed the education programme of the Cambridge Arts Cinema and Cambridge Film Festival, where her interest in the industrial aspects of cinema grew.

As the new head of media, Barrow has begun developing links with Lincolnshire business, community, and media organisations. She hopes this will give students opportunities for to work on several projects outside of the university.
